My Fair Lady

Hey Audrey!

I watched your film My Fair Lady with a friend the other day. We both loved it! I'm so happy that Cecil Beaton, who designed your iconic costumes, won an Academy Award for them back in 1965. When I first saw the film as a little girl,  I wanted my wedding dress to look exactly like the white ball dress with matching long white gloves. Now I love the shell pink organza tea dress most. Normally I hate musicals, but I know the lyrics of the My Fair Lady songs off by heart. "I have often walked down this street before. But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before da di da..."And the dialogue is really funny. Like the part where your character, Eliza Doolittle, explains to the snooty guests at the Ascot races: "Not her, gin was mother's milk to her. Besides he poured so much down his own throat, he knew the good of it."
